Thank you Charles. I think Merlin, and others, could be rather busy before the Easter season.
One problem I have with Wikipedia is that we do not know who is contributing.
It does not have the benefit of known authors of books, who gain a reputation in their fields, and we can usually read a bit about their work.
Another benefit of known authors is that their work is set in time, relating to the period in which their study occurred.
Those online things will be forever being editied, I assume. Historical colour will forever be tweaked.
The "history" will change under political influences I imagine, so that only the latest is available.
At least with books, we can compare writings, and form our own judgements, and assess work under different periods of influence.
I do appreciate that you answered here, Charles
I have been thinking of just how important the Abbey is to recent coronations. It must be a real treasure house of coronation paraphernalia.
But I had also been pondering over whether other sites might have been put forward in recent centuries.
